Take time to enjoy life’s simple treasures
A dear friend of mine stitched this picture frame for me in 2010.
And since then, it accompanied me, reminding me to take time to enjoy life’s simple treasures.
I wouldn’t be truthful if I brag that I heeded this message all the time. As life’s responsibilities, personal trials, challenges, and racing for achievements took me away from life’s simplest pleasure and treasure of them all: living a simple life.
These days, staying away from my office and businesses made me realize that the dream I was chasing was materialized a long, long time ago. Too many things in my life I am grateful for. An extended loving family and friends that care for me and likewise, I care for. And I wouldn’t forget those few remarkable hearts that love me and certainly, I love them back.
Having lived to see COVID-19’s rising number of the dead, my businesses, my things, my achievements, my degrees, don’t mean nothing to me anymore. I just wish to travel back in time and look for and connect with the simple treasure in life.
Below, I share some of the personal things in my life: my office.
In this Holy Day, this post is your invitation to spirituality connect to what matters to you the most.
